Cult of Mac

MacX MediaTrans works great with iOS 17. I've been looking for an alternative to iTunes. Luckily, I found this. It makes data syncing and backup much easier.


Love your software for transferring data, I am a lifetime registered user. It has a few more features that other data backup tools don't have. Great idea with the DRM removal.


I used MacX MediaTrans to delete videos on my phone to make more space for them after I have exported them. Great job. Now I have more space on my phone to store movies.


Very neat data transfer app, and it's a breeze to get to know how to start. Data sorting and transferring is intuitive.

FYI: Features and Speed Tests on the File Transfer for 2020

Our test mainly focused on the transfer speed. To get deep knowing about its edges over other iOS data transfer & backup software, we chose to transfer DRM M4V video purchased from iTunes on iPhone to Mac with an MP4 output, which is one of the biggest features from the file transfer software 2020. The source video is 27.5 MB in size, 720p HD. We tested it on macOS Sierra based iMac (Core i5, 8GB 1333 MHz DDR3, AMD Radeon HD 6770M 512MB).

• Timing Tests
It only took 10 seconds to transfer the DRM M4V video file from iPhone to Mac - it's worth mentioning that the time would vary from computer to computer. The DRM removal process was finished automatically and immediately. When clicking "export" and transferring all the files from iPhone to Mac, the transferring tool gave message to tell users which videos were encrypted and we could directly click Decode to transfer data to DRM-free format for more convenient file sharing and playback. There was no error report nor freezing nor data loss during the transferring process.

• Ease of Use
Very simple and intuitive interface. We were able to quickly find any additional features and options, like deleting/modifying, making ringtone, converting video format. A warm prompt for users: do follow to turn off iTunes auto syncing before transferring any data.
